London: Hollywood actress Eva Longoria is enjoying a blissful marital life and says that husband Tony Parker is always surprising her with unexpected romantic gifts.

The `Desperate Housewives` star, who has been married to the basketball star since 2007, said that her sportsman spouse constantly impresses her with gifts and treats and is good at planning romantic surprises, reported Contactmusic.

"He does great birthdays and great anniversary surprises all the time. We kind of battle it out with surprises," said the 35-year-old actress.

Longoria, who is seven years elder to her husband, claimed that marriage has transformed the couple`s relationship for the better.

However, the actress confessed that their long distance relationship due to their hectic professional lives is not ideal, even though it gives her a chance to catch up on her reading.

"I love planes, I love travelling. It`s the only time I get to read - and I have a lot of reading to do," she said.
